Two Arrested in Fatal Shooting on Wichita State Campus

Wichita police say a shooting death on the Wichita State University campus was not a random act.

Deputy Police Chief Hassan Ramzah says a 23-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were arrested Sunday afternoon in connection with the shooting.

The victim, 23-year-old Rayan Ibrahim Baba, was found in a campus parking lot Saturday morning suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at a Wichita hospital.

Ramzah says Baba was acquainted with the two suspects and had arranged to meet them at Fairmount Towers, where he lived.

The Wichita Eagle reports Baba was a Saudi undergraduate student majoring in electrical engineering but was not signed up for classes this fall.

Wichita State police chief Sara Morris says Baba’s death is the first homicide on the campus since 1993.
